voted for refusing to raise the debt ceiling in 2006, talking about president obama. >> let me give you a history. when i came to the congress in 1977, one of the first days i was there, tip o'neill saw me, said, you look like a nice young guy, we need somebody to carry out the trash. he said carrying out the trash is passing the debt limit increase. i spent five years. this is a crazy story, doing little else than going to my colleagues in the domestemocraty to get a vote in the debt ceiling. everybody wanted to vote against it because it could be used against them in the election. everybody knew it had to pass and every time it would pass by one or two votes after i worked on it for weeks and weeks. i said, this is crazy. everybody knows you have to pass it, you already spent the money, like going in a restaurant and saying, i don't want to pay the bill. that's cracrazy. we passed something called the gephardt bill when you pass the budget, you pass the debt ceiling automatically to accommodate those budget figures. yes, you're right. this issue raises all the deficit issues. it shoul
. it seems like something they would want to talk about. >> certainly. even michelle obama was offering, you know, her support saying she wants other retailers involved as well in this program. i'm not sure what happened. >> i am assuming they don't want to put themselves on television because. gun debate that is raging at the moment. it's a very difficult subject for the largest seller of weapons in the united states. if you look at what happened in the wake of the shooting that we had here, they removed the bushmaster ar-15 that killed 26 people from their website. and yet we're still selling semiautomatic guns, and many guns sold out of the semiautomatic guns and they say they're not prepared to change their gun mix. they're right in the heart of that debate as the largest licensed gun seller in the united states, as we get moves almost by the hour. the white house trying to change gun policy. >> exactly. >> reluctantly. they didn't want to go in the first instance and said, we didn't realize how important that it was that we were physically. >> we'll discuss that today as well. i wish i
you're talking about, ed, is an opportunity for businesses and washington to work together on energy. we're not seeing that. >> obama has been more energy friendly than people would like to admit. numbers back it up. production doing very, very well when he's been in office and the other thing i'm saying -- >> what about the keystone pipeline? >> nothing has come of it yet, but let me tell you there are other pipelines producing pretty well without that pipeline. we're talking 16% last year, 14% increase this year, another 10% the year after that. we're going to look at almost a 50% increase in oil production in four years in the united states so something seems to be working and it's not -- washington can't seem to stop it because the technology and the raw materials seem to be there. >> despite, despite washington. >> david, jump in here. how are you investing today? >> well, you know, we've talked about the vix earnings. right now we're coming off a trough in the third quarter. we don't expect much more earnings, for fourth-quarter earnings. vix is really contrarian indicator, a l
, that president obama said we're going to have an economist on today on how you get -- you know, we're going to talk to him. he says the one thing that would hurt the economy is in cuts in social security or medicare or medicaid. any type of reform to those things. >> to the true liberal -- >> other than raising taxes up to the level where you fund the promises that we've already made. the entitlements that we've already made and the guarantees we've made, they just want to raise taxes on somebody. i don't know who, to the point where we never actually reform medicare, medicaid or social security. >> the question i want to ask him, is there ever a time that he's making, is it now given where we are in the economy? >> well, the question is, you put in a hundred and you take out 400 in medicare and the government covers 300. >> and it makes no sense. >> well, no, but there are people that think that the government's roll is to provide that 300. and so we should raise taxes to the point where you -- it doesn't matter that you -- >> right. >> it doesn't matter. that is the redistribution. >> tha
